Doomsday. The apocalypse. End times. Judgment Day. Every culture has its own eschatology; its own vision of the end of the world. Doomsday is a compilation project to assemble tracks themed around this cataclysmic concept - noise, dark ambient, abstract sounds that reflect upon, relish in, admonish against or in some way celebrate your vision of eschatology. When the day of reckoning is upon us, let it not be said that we were ill-prepared to provide its soundtrack.

Denouement. Swan song. This project is finished. Ten years in the making, this is the final gasp of an idea that has run its course. Revel in the culmination of a decade's worth of experimentation, as it comes to fruition in this stuttering, semi-aborted lunge at the essence of all that is, was and ever will be Controlled Dissonance.

Upload The Brain Universe is a collection of spoken word recordings culled from the literature of Japanese cyberpunk author Kenji Siratori and offered to experimental artists as a contribution towards a collaboration. Featuring a broad range of avant garde sound experimentalists Upload The Brain Universe melts jarringly through a gammut of nontraditional music and non-music styles, each track hauntingly accentuated by the distinct contributions of Kenji himself.

Klang! is a compilation of noise, abstract, minimal and dark ambient tracks created of sounds culled from metal objects. Those densest of elements, manufactured into so many assorted apparatuses of modern convenience, are beaten, plucked, bowed, abused, misused and processed for your listening pleasure in this diverse collection of offerings from a wide range of sonic reprobates.

Collusion is a long play noise/dark ambient collaboration effort. The concept is simple: artists contribute minimal dark ambient or noise tracks, contributed tracks will be layered to create a continuous piece. The contributions were taken as submitted and layered into the mix. The first half of the submitted track was mixed over the existing piece and the second half was mixed with subsequent submissions (layered on as they are received). This process continued until the track length exceeded...

"I think more people should release music anonymously." Of Unknown Origin is a compilation project inspired by an idea posited by a certain performer from Montreal who will, for the sake of continuity, remain unnamed. The concept is one of the "sound-object-as-mysterious-artefact-of-unknown-origin" -- each track contributed by an unknown entity and offered without attribution for an utterly egoless expression of such sound objects.

Thoughts of the Long Now is a compilation of drone pieces, adhering to the minimalist tenets of the style.
